The updates are unique. Although in English, they are from the point of view of that country. They are brief and informal and cover the big things that people are focused on there.
We do this because domestic news can often be overly biased, or in the weeds, and can be a bit like trying to drink from a firehose. International news, particularly in English, is rarely from the point of view of people there. And none is particularly comprehensive or concise. We hope that by providing this we can improve international understanding.
The main groups that will find these updates interesting are migrants, including expatriates working there, people studying there, global nomads based there, but also people with significant others/friends originally from a certain country that would like to know more about their friends/loved one’s homeland, people that want to travel or even move to that country, first, second, or third-generation migrants from that country who want to build or keep a connection. They are free and open for anybody to listen to and don’t have advertisements.
